Where Can I Buy Rabbit in Los Angeles?
I'm interesting in trying out rabbit in a stew or braise.
Does anyone know where to buy rabbit? And, does anyone have cooking suggestions besides chicken fried rabbit?
99 Ranch Markets and Vallarta Markets almost always have them frozen.
As to cooking, The Vongrichten/Bittman collaboration "Simple To Spectacular" has several fairly simple first-time recipes.
Most good independent butchers should be able to get you a fresh one.
Bunny Marengo - with onions, peppers, tomatoes, olives - look up chicken marengo.
Both poultry butchers @ Farmers Market, 3rd & Fairfax--Marconda's (formerly Puritan Poultry) and Farmers Market Poultry usually have fresh rabbit.
I have seen them fresh at the Weds Santa Monica Farmers Market. Vendor that has them is at south end of 2nd st, i think. Recipe I use is a braise that has green olives in it. Great combo!
